I did note that I could have Stealth on and a costume now.  They used to be non-compatible.

Yes! That was a change made in either the last page or the previous before that. We went through and tested Stealth with every Costume temp to make sure.

I know now the holiday craze is upon us  and will be here for while as they cycle through Halloween, Christmas and valentines day

IS  there a way to avoid the holiday BS?   IS there a place / server that is holiday events don't happen??

The holidays is one of the worst times for many people; highest number of suicides and instances of domestic violence. 

 I just don't understand the need to shove the holiday events upon the entire gaming community; why not a space where they can be avoided.

 

Just making a point that not everyone likes these holiday events

Whoa yikes, those statistics may belong in the real world, but not in this video game. The holiday events in this game are a good time, in fact some of the best times I've ever enjoyed were during holiday events. 

 

I understand your point though - there are other servers out there to try during the times you're not excited about or you could run your own server as well. Just some ideas!

I think if you play villain side and gold side you won't see any holiday stuff. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Being constantly offended doesn't mean you're right, it just means you're too narcissistic to tolerate opinions different than your own.

The in game holiday events are game wide - blue, red, and gold.

Yep.  You just need to be the right level in the right zone for ToT.

 

Though I've not tested the tip drops in Praetoria.  Normally tips only drop from level 20 on*, and that would leave only First Ward available (Night Ward doesn't seem to do Hallowe'en, weirdly).  But tips also don't normally drop in coop zones...like First Ward.  So, some testing is in order.

 

Besides that it is impossible for a 24 carat Gold to get all the badges from Whispered Rumor, because they cannot swap alignments.

 

*Exploration Tips were designed to bypass this.

Couldn't they swap after an alignment mission? From either Loyalist to Resistance or vice-versa?

Nope.  You can do all the undercover work on either side you like with alignment missions, but you're still Resistance or Loyalist.  The Alignment missions just tell you what SORT of Resistance or Loyalist you are., From Power to Responsibility to Warden to Crusader.  You want that last badge?  You take the Rift mission and head to Primal. 

 

That Gold or Blue icon beside your health bar won't change until you cross the Rift.

Good news then.  You don’t need to participate in them.  Personally, I think that Valentine’s Day is a crock.  So I just don’t participate in the Valentine’s Day event.  When the event is over, I dismiss all of the event tips, and go on with my day.

 

FWIW, I am unaware of any server that does not activate the holiday events.

Oh, sure enough. I didn't see any decorations, but I forgot about clicking on the doors to trick-or-treat. I don't think I've ever done that villain side.

 

Thanks for the correction.

App you can be my Valentine's Bestie cuz I avoid that stuff like the plaque. I decline the Valentine reality and substitute my own. 

 

But I also recognize that is a valid point. The holiday's suck for those who are vulnerable and at risk. It is possible to be isolated even in a group game no matter how it is imposed. ToT is a big thing for our group, but that's about it. Anyone on Torch need to run someone to run content with, outside of Hami hours I'm 90% down for whatever. Esp Frostfire.

I wish we could get some or all of the Halloween-only stuff year round... Dr Kane's House of Horror wouldn't take up that much space in LFG. Maybe Trick-or-Treating year round in Echo: Dark Astoria... Supernatural Activity (just one random zone) when someone completes a HoH...

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed the Brickstown Prison Break event, which wasn't spawning enough Prisoners to complete.

     

 

Prior to this fix, the initial Prisoner spawn contained a few bosses. Now it just contains LTs and minions. Was this intended?
